New Must-Have Home Décor Item: A Shovel

October 21st, 2014 · 2 Comments

Hot item for Fall 2014:  a decorative shovel.  Very trendy.

It has a rooster painted on it!  And raffia ribbon on the handle!

It elevates this kitchen.

A few days later, we spotted another shovel used as decoration at another Phoenix home.  Right in the middle of the living room.  Now that’s a true statement piece.  Halloween and Thanksgiving are coming up.  I’m rushing over to Home Depot right now to pick up some shovels and then to Hobby Lobby for acrylic paints, brushes, and raffia!
